I think FedEx is a horrible company to work for. They only care about their profit margins and thats the bottom line. They consistently keep their stores under staffed so they don't have to pay as much. If you work in the evenings better be prepared to stay late. You can plan on being stuck there till everything is done for the morning. You also should be prepared to say Yes We Can to anything a customer might want even if you know it is not humanly possible and you don't have the equipment to do it. They also try to put so much pressure on you that you will be incredibly scared to use little if any sick time. This leads to often going to work sick and spreading sickness to customers.
They also are on a kick of hiring less educated people so they can start them off at lower wages. I think this is very exploitive and cruel. Anyway, I hope this helps some people out there. If anyone had a good experience with FedEx than good for you! Maybe the company is different in other places.

"Yes we can!"
I hated that saying with a passion. That mystery shop so depends on you saying those exact words. One time I said it so robotically to a customer on the phone, he busted out laughing. The culture of fear be strong and F-Off! By keeping people afraid to lose their job over the slightest infraction has been the greatest friend to F-Off because they can treat the staff anyway they feel like it. However, I don't know if they specifically discriminate against people with an education. I think it might be more along the lines that if you are desperate for a job they will pay you as little as they think they can get away with. I went to apply at office max and they told me that $11hr was a lot of money the best they would pay is $9.50hr and that was with experience and education. The whooping $11.00hr was only around 21k a year so I don't know what hiring Office Max manager was talking about. I am using my situation with Office max to show that exploitation isn't strictly at F-Off. I believe all of these companies are using the same handbook.
